What you should expect to learn
This course is designed to narrow the focus of study related to the broad categories of knowledge a candidate needs prior to attempting to successfully pass the Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN®) advanced certification exam from the Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing (BCEN®).

The Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN®) Exam  Review Course is a comprehensive, critical care review course created for registered nurses working in a critical care environment. This course is vital to an individual provider's clinical practice and competency as well as for the safety of the critically ill and injured patients that are entrusted to their care. Emerge is redefining nursing education by offering a review/preparatory course that will position the registered nurse to be successful when taking the Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN®) specialization examination. The Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN®) Course takes place in an online learning environment and provides the registered nurse with the convenience and flexibility of working at their own pace. The modules of instruction have been created around the content model in the Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN®) suggested outline material for preparation. Participants will have 1 (one) year to complete the course. Additionally, course content remains accessible for up to 1 (one) year, even after course completion - this offers further opportunities for reviewing content even after the course has been fully completed. Learn more. Earn more. Make a difference. Remember that what you learn today determines someone else’s tomorrow.

Technical requirements
There are only 2 absolute requirements: (1) You have to have JavaScript enabled in your browser, and (2) you cannot use Internet Explorer 6 or 7 (these browsers are simply too old to be able to do the interactive things our learning management system does.)
Screen Size
A minimum of 1024x600. That is the average size of a netbook. You probably won't want to view your course on a smaller screen than that - although, it is absolutely possible.
Operating Systems
Windows XP SP3 and newer, Mac OSX 10.6 and newer Linux, ChromeOS
Mobile OS Native App Support
iOS 5 and newer, and Android 2.3 and newer
Computer Speed and Processor
Optimally, use a computer that is equipped with at least 1GB of RAM and a processor capable of 2GHz speeds. In general, these are computers that have been manufactured in the last 5 years.
Internet Speed
Along with compatibility and web standards, our learning management system has been carefully crafted to accommodate low bandwidth environments. An absolute minimum bandwidth of 512k is required.
Screen Readers
The latest versions of JAWS and VoiceOver
Important notice
We recommend a minimum bandwidth of 512K (which is basic DSL). Dial-up internet access is no longer a viable option for online learners.
Supported web browsers
Because it's built using web standards, our learning management system runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android, or any other device with a modern web browser. Although not an exhaustive list, we support Internet Explorer 8, Chrome 19, Safari 5, Firefox 12. If, during your experience with your course, you find that your browser seems to be having trouble displaying content it is recommended that you ensure that you are using the latest version of your browser. Alternatively, you may need to switch to another browser. We find that Chrome 19 has the best overall compatibility (as reported by our users).
Rather than focusing on minimums, we highly recommend updating to the newest version of whatever browser you are using as well as the most up-to-date Flash plug-in. Flash 9 is sometimes a requirement of our learning management system for media recording/streaming and viewing, chat, and uploading files to a course or an assignment. Other than these features, Flash is not required to use in most areas. The Java plug-in is required for screen sharing in Conferences. Otherwise, there are no other browser plug-ins that are required. The learning management system user interface was optimized for desktop displays, small form factors such as phones may not be optimal for viewing. We recommend trying out our Mobile App (Canvas Mobile App on Apple and Android app stores).
Exclusions and notices
You are responsible for scheduling and paying for your actual advanced certification exam after completing your studies. The cost of taking your advanced certification exam is not included in the price of our review courses.
